Trading Algorithm by SHI FX Strategy

Among all these analysis tools, the most significant is SHI Channel. The first thing you need is to check a formed trading range. If its lines are directed upwards, open only a Buy order. If the lines are directed downwards, open a Sell order.   

Pay attention to the width of the range. If it is too narrow, it is better to stop trading and wait until it becomes wider. Then, you can start to look for a good opportunity for making a deal.

SHI FX Strategy suggests the following necessary conditions for opening Buy orders:

  • The bullish trend, which is indicated by the top direction of SHI Channel. It is better to use such situations when the chart moves lower than the central line.
  • The green curve i_Trend crosses a red one from the bottom up.
  • The Laguerre indications are higher than 0.15.
  • PerskyAsctrend shows a green mark below the asset’s price.

Sell orders are opened according to the opposite principle.

If you see that all these requirements for SHI FX Strategy are met, open a position in the direction of the trend. Stop Loss is set at a distance of several pips from the border of the range.

Exit from the Market

SHI FX Strategy involves a few methods for closing orders, depending on the situation and preferences of a particular trader.

Exit when you receive the opposite signal, or when the price chart reaches the opposite border of the range. Also, you can set a fixed Take Profit level, depending on the volatility of traded currencies. The experts recommend applying a partial closure of positions, as soon as the price approaches the middle line of the channel.  

Advantages and Disadvantages of the Strategy

Among the pluses of this method are a high-quality technical analysis and clear algorithm. At the same time, you cannot open a position often. We advise checking each signal using additional filters, carefully reviewing compliance of market conditions with all the strategy’s rules.

Before starting real trading, we recommend testing it on a demo account.
